Mellow, Sweet, Good-natured

Buster is like the endlessly patient grandpa who is calm around all the grandkids, even the extra rambunctious ones! When young cats run around him and play like crazy, he doesn't mind. He just sits back and takes it all in. He understands...he was an active youngster once too.

Recently at the shelter a grumpy old lady cat took a swat at him. This unflappable sweetie backed away and gave her the space she needed. You can add crisis management skills to Buster's list of talents! We have not seen Buster with dogs, but he definitely is amazing with other cats.

If you're interested in giving a home to a mellow, sweet senior cat, we highly recommend you seriously consider Buster. The previous shelter that cared for him said they were so impressed all the way around by Buster. We agree and you will too! Contact us to schedule a meet and greet!

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.

For further information or to meet Buster, please email [email protected].

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
